Hiring the right photographer is important. You want someone who is going to perfectly capture your memories.
For me, photography is more than taking a pretty picture. It's about capturing moments that are bigger than myself. It's about encapsulating a feeling, an emotion, a memory- and preserving it for you for a lifetime and beyond.
It's about doing whatever I need to do to get the perfect shot. Whether that means laying on the ground in wet grass, or singing Baby Shark like a maniac trying to get your kiddos to smile.
It's about seeing the beauty in each place and every person. It's about telling their story that is unique to them, but relatable to others.

Here's what clients are saying:
"Aileen is such a pleasure to work with. Her personality is just as beautiful as her work. She makes you feel so comfortable and really captures your moments. I was so nervous but working with her is like working with your best friend. I plan on working with her as our family grows. I would highly recommend her to anyone !"

commonly asked questions
How many photos do I get?
Each session is different. I never know what moments are going to pop up for me to capture. Definitely quality over quantity, but I feel as though I'm very generous with the amount of photos I deliver. I try not to limit it to a certain number.
What is your experience in wedding photography?
The first wedding I photographed was in August of 2015. Since then, I have photographed over 80 weddings. Each day is different, but I always feel right at home when I'm photographing a wedding day.
Can I bring my dog to my photo shoot?
100% yes. I love dogs and am always happier when there is a dog around. Please just make sure you bring something to clean up after them, and also make sure they are on a leash. I always recommend bringing along someone to hold the dog while they aren't being used for photos.
Do you travel?
YAS. I love to travel! Cleveland, Ohio is my home base- but I'm down to go wherever your story takes me. I've got my passport and am ready! Where are we going?! *Travel fees apply
Where are we going to take our photos?
I know a ton of cool spots! Just let me know what kind of location you're envisioning (beach, nature, city, etc). If you know of somewhere cool, I'm always down to hear your ideas! Heads up that travel fees may apply if the location is 40+ miles from my home.
When is the best time to book?
My schedule tends to fill quickly, so the sooner the better! Weekdays are ideal for my schedule, but if you need a weekend I can make something work! Best times for scheduling photos are either early in the morning or later in the evening. Basically whenever the sun isn't so harsh. Looks much nicer for photos!
Do you do mini sessions?
Yes! I call them Paloozas! I do Paloozas every few months. My main Paloozas are Mother's Day, Father's Day and Christmas. I also try and do one in the spring, and may do a few random ones here and there when my schedule allows. Keep an eye on my Facebook page for updates!
Weddings are delivered anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks following the wedding date.
Portrait sessions are typically delivered anywhere up to 2 weeks following the session date.
Email is my preferred method of communication. If you're more of a talker, I'd love to set up a phone call or in person meeting to chat more!
